Hit and Miss

Strengths:

Compact When it works, it works well.

Weaknesses:

Dropping it will make it so you have to take the casing off to continue use Does not like long USB cables (6' work fine)

Additional Comments:

When it works well, it works for a while. I put this thing through the ringer, it read over a thousand floppy diskettes before quitting on me. Not knowing that they were hit and miss I went out to get another one to continue archiving and it lasted 2 disks. Unfortunately I had already tossed the box as I had assumed it would work like the previous.

External USB Floppy Drive Black

Strengths:

This product does read the floppy data

Weaknesses:

This product does not save any data to the floppy.

Additional Comments:

I feel ripped of. 44.99 plus tax and the product does not do all that it was purchased for.

Works for me

Strengths:

- portable

Weaknesses:

- none

Additional Comments:

I've had this drive for over a year now. Really handy for system builds especially when installing a RAID setup. Now, motherboards don't come with a floppy connector onboard so having this in your tool kit is a must.

I'm happy

Strengths:

Allowed installation of WinXP 32-bit onto a RAID 5 array on a computer without a floppy connector.

Weaknesses:

None

Additional Comments:

I almost did not buy this product because of the last review but when I got to the store the salesman convinced me to give it a try.

I was able to use this drive to format a 3.5" floppy and install the RAID drivers I needed to install WinXP on a new computer without a built in floppy drive.

I don't know what the other guys problem was. This drive did everything I wanted and it was way cheaper than the others.

I have no complaints.

Does not work

Strengths:

Recognized by system but will not read the floppies.

Weaknesses:

Wants to format all disks. Will not read the data on the floppy.

Additional Comments:

Would not recommend this drive because of its failure to read the floppy and wanting to format. When trying to format a floppy...still fails. This drive fails to get my recommendation. Will be returning it for a refund.
